Rituals and Ceremonies

The diverse rituals and ceremonies of different religions and cults are intended to release divine love, but they mostly bind the soul to the repetitive mechanism of expressive forms. Attachment to the rigid forms of external expressions of love to God not only limits the love itself but creates separative divisions between one religion […]

Baba also met individually with a few of his lovers that day (during the Hyderabad meeting).

Nana Kher told him, “I wish to stay with you.”

“Would you do as I tell you?” Baba asked.

“Assuredly!” was his quick reply.

“From tomorrow, start drinking two bottles […]

Divine Love vs worldly love

 

The journalist asked, “Could you speak of love, sir? What do you mean, when you speak of love?”

Baba, in turn, asked:

Love? What is love? First of all, here is my beloved, and naturally I love him. I love the beloved. Now, what is that love, love for the beloved? It means […]

God As Bliss

The message “God As Bliss” was read at several places in Hamirpur:

Everywhere, in every walk of life, man, without exception, is thirsting for happiness. From the diverse allurements of sensual life and from the many possessions and attainments that feed and tickle the ego, as also from the numberless experiences […]

Once during the summer of 1959, when Deshmukh’s entire family came for Baba’s darshan, his daughter Sanjeevani complained to Baba, “Father is in your contact for years, but why is it that his behavior is a constant source of embarrassment to us? Compared to him we are much more sensible.”

Baba said, “I will […]

Body and mind

Baba then went back to Gadekar’s house at eight o’clock (while at Sholapur), and met select workers of the Meher Spiritual Centre of Sholapur for one hour. Baba explained some spiritual truths to them, commenting:

When nothing upsets you, you are at the beginning of the path. When you desire nothing, you are half-way […]

Highroads to God – Part 2 (Final)

The quickest of these highroads lies through the God-Man, who is consciously One with the Truth. In the God-Man, God reveals Himself in all His glory, with His infinite power, unfathomable knowledge, inexpressible bliss and eternal existence. The path through the God-Man is available only to those fortunate ones who approach him in complete […]

Highroads to God – Part 1

A message about the paths to God was read out at one public function in Meherastana. It was entitled “Highroads to God” (at Mahewa):

In an important sense, all walks of life and all paths ultimately lead but to the one Goal, meaning, God. All rivers enter into the ocean, in spite of the […]

Miracles and Spiritual Healing – Part 2 (Final)

But even miracles, in the last analysis, are illusory, even as every happening of this world is illusory. There can be no special point in producing some petty imitation illusions in the mighty Infinite Illusion already created by God. The healing of physical or mental suffering can be achieved through the exercise of supernatural […]
